Iranian Site Denies Holocaust, With Cartoons

Plus A’jad’s mysterious firecracker and a warning of war

You probably won’t get it to load—which is good, in its way—but a new Website put out by an Iranian cultural foundation (apparently not affiliated with the government) contains a comic-book history, originally drawn in 2008, in which the Holocaust, “the great lie,” did not happen. Specifically, according to the site, the Holocaust is a lie perpetuated by the Jews, a device “by which the Palestine occupier Zionists have justified their occupying of Palestine and lots of their crimes for years.” Additionally, its depictions of Jews are themselves anti-Semitic caricatures (as you can see).

Weird stuff is going on with Iran right now. Earlier this week, someone reportedly attempted to kill Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, though the president himself claims that the explosion near him was in fact a firecracker.

And on Tuesday, a group of ex-intelligence professionals calling themselves Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity wrote President Obama warning him of Israel’s allegedly imminent plans to bomb Iran’s nuclear facilities. “Israel might mousetrap the U.S. into war with Iran,” the letter, which also cited “the Likud lobby,” asserts.

Do Iranians ever see the irony in the fact that they themselves have large noses?

Empress Trudy says: posted a article about this with a giggle and shrug and about 90% of the letters to the editor either say the holocaust didn’t happen or who cares if it did.
